How it happened!

PatchesMothers' Fabric (with the help of Patches) opened in October of 2005 with about 500 bolts of fabric and a few notions. Now, there are about 3000 bolts to choose from, the newest patterns, books, stencils, cutters, thread, kits, and more! We are open five days a week. We will be offering classes as soon as the lower level class area is made beautiful. We're working on it!

In 1991, my mother and I signed up for a six week course at Georgian College in Owen Sound. The instructor was a local quilter, Eleanor Griffith and the quilt top was Eleanor Burns' log cabin. So you could say that the two Eleanor's were the cause of my quilting addiction.

Of course, the fabric store needed a name. Wendy's Fabric might have made sense, but we had spent sixteen years answering the phone, 'Wendy's Flowers' - so I thought something different was in order. I thought about quilters in general and came to the conclusion that most quilters are usually (but not always) women. Also, we all have Grandma's old quilt, or maybe Mom still has it and we can only hope that someday it shall be ours. In our store we have my mother in law's dining room table (it's too big for our house). So, as a tribute to all mothers, Mothers' Fabric (plural) was named.
